Piet,

 

I've used RichProfile from Richard Coggins a couple of times to migrate
client profiles:

Read the RichProfile.txt for more instructions.

 

Kind regards,

Hi there,

 

You'll need the Office Customization Toolkit - create a PRF file and
make some "logic" (perhaps in a script) on how and when to import it
(OUTLOOK.EXE /ImportPRF <"path to PRF file">)

You'll need the Office Resource Kit:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=4BB7CB10-A6E5-4
334-8925-3BCF308CFBAF&displaylang=en

 

If needed you may want to delete old profiles, in that case look here:

"Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging
Subsystem\Profiles\"

You'll need to study these PRF options:

DefaultProfile=Yes
OverwriteProfile=Yes
ModifyDefaultProfileIfPresent=false

 

There are many ways to do this - depending on your need, but the above
should be a good start.

 

 

Good luck J

Hello, 

We are going to change all our users outlook clients to access email
from a  hosted server using POP3.  In order to do this we need to change
all their outlook profiles. Is there anyway to do this via GPO or
perhaps logon scripts?  Anyone have experience doing this?

what I am looking for is a way to have these profiles changed
automatically,  have each username for the accounts be autopopulated so
that users would only need to enter a password to access their new
accounts.  

 

Thanks!
